The Mother of All Demos

Douglas Engelbart, A research center for augmenting human intellect (1968)

From Wikipedia: The Mother of All Demos is a name given retrospectively to Douglas Engelbart’s December 9, 1968, demonstration at the Fall Joint Computer Conference (FJCC) at the Convention Center in San Francisco, in which a number of experimental technologies that have since become commonplace were presented. The demo featured the first computer mouse the public had ever seen, as well as introducing interactive text, video conferencing, teleconferencing, email, hypertext and a collaborative real-time editor.
